I have been presented with an opportunity to go on a medical mission trip to Zambia, South Africa in July of 2013 with OMNI. OMNI provides medical care to those living in remote villages who would otherwise be chronically ill, lose limbs, or even die. During this trip, I will travel with a medical team comprised of nurses, doctors and dentists from around the U.S. I will serve as a support to them and will hopefully have the opportunity utilize my public health background by providing education and demonstrating healthy living practices.

As you can imagine, the cost of traveling to Zambia, providing lodging and meals for almost 2 weeks is not cheap. The cost is $3,800 and does not include the immunizations that I will need before I depart. It is my hope that everyone I know, and even those I don't know, will donate at least $5 to assist me in defraying the expenses I will incur.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a sincere passion for service, and that this trip will not only change my life, but will change the lives of everyone I come in contact with. I'm sure we would all love to have such an experience, but circumstances don't always allow. Through your donation, I will be taking a piece of you with me and hopefully bringing something back that exeeds anything that money could buy. Consider your donation as planting a seed of life, that will be watered by my experience, with the increase going to the people of Zambia, but most importantly to God.

I thank you in advance for your financial support as well as your prayers!
